“Hidden Gem in Boone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2012

Having been to Boone many times, I was looking for somewhere different to enjoy a weekend of rest and relaxation. I found exactly that at the Lovill House Inn! Upon arrival I was tense and worn out; however after experiencing an in-room massage and simple R&R on the inn grounds, I left feeling energized. From the beautiful flowers just beginning to bloom to the peaceful hammock in the yard to the delicious breakfast each morning, I absolutely loved my weekend. Scott and Anne are a delightful couple that leave no detail ignored. The Lovill House Inn is a MUST when staying in Boone!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 December 2011

Having a daughter at ASU, we have stayed in many of the chain hotels in Boone. The Lovill House Inn was a welcome change! The owners, Scott and Anne, could not have been nicer. The room was very comfortable and clean and breakfast was very good. Bed was very comfortable. And there is a beautiful waterfall on the property. During nice weather, one could walk down King Street into Boone and to the University.
If I had to make a suggestion, it would maybe be to add some light snacks in the kitchen (water, soft drinks, wine and beer are available) and this is extremely picky, but the coffee could have been a little hotter. But the food was very good, and Anne accommodated our dietary requests.
I will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: One room is downstairs by the front door.

Recently my husband and I booked 5 days at the beautiful Lovill House, in Boone, N.C. This Bed and Breakfast had wonderful reviews so we were not surprised that our stay was so much
more enjoyable than we anticipated. Our room and bath were immaculate and furnished so
tastefully. So very homey coming down to a roaring fire in the fireplace to have our coffee and
converse with some of the other guests. At 8:30 am a little bell rings to announce that breakfast is ready and what a wonderful breakfast they all were. Anne and Scott are there to
answer all your questions about the town and surrounding areas and extend themselves to make your experience with them wonderful. Vicky E

We very much liked the house, our room, and the owners. The rooms are beautifully done. And, they have spaciousness. Scott and Anne make a real effort to think of making a stay there pleasurable. We would definitely return there if we can- and perhaps hit some warm enough weather to use one of the rockers on the huge porch!

We had an absolutely wonderful weekend. It was our first stay at the Lovill House Inn. Scott and Anne are so welcoming. Their attention to detail is impeccable and Anne's breakfasts are a treat to eat. Our room was quite spacious and had all of the comforts of home. We will be back to stay again whenever we're in Boone visiting our daughter at ASU.

Lovill House is very close to a busy 2 lane highway, but don't be deceived. Once you're behind the beautiful evergreen barrier trees, it's as though you're somewhere in the country. Beautiful and quiet interior with a bit of neat history. (You'll have to find out what that history is by booking a room!) Scott and Ann run their charming inn most ably. We'll be back!

We are repeat visitors and find consistent quality food, top maintenance of the eye-catching property, strong knowledge of the area, and gracious hospitalty. And, the owners go the extra mile. When the kids got sunburned, Anne produced an aloe plant. The aged/dry wood burns in the fireplace, with one light. When our son at App State joined us for breakfast, they set another plate.
